LEGO Slope-climbing Experiments

LEGO Slope-climbing Experiments

After impressing us with a LEGO car that can climb over a stack of books, the Brick Experiment Channel is back with a simpler vehicle design challenge. The plan? Dial in the right mix of traction, gearing, wheelbase, and weight balance to climb the steepest sheet of glass possible. And then, start cheating.

LEGO Ideas Boston Dynamics Spot Robot

LEGO Ideas Boston Dynamics Spot Robot

LEGO builder Tom Jones, aka WalkCrawlRun created this 1/4-scale model of Boston Dynamics’ adorable Spot robot. While the LEGO version isn’t likely to be as smart or agile as the $75,000 robot, it is able to trot around on its legs like a robodog. Show your support for the design on LEGO Ideas.

LEGO 7-Segment Display

LEGO 7-Segment Display

A while back, expert LEGO engineer and mathematician Alexander Holroyd created a 7-segment display that uses LEGO Technic parts to change digits. Fello LEGO fan and GBC builder Fernando recreated the intriguing machine, and shared video footage of his version in action.

Carry your meal to school or work in one of these playful plastic lunch totes that look like an oversize LEGO block.

LEGO Rainbow Bricks Puzzle

LEGO Rainbow Bricks Puzzle

We are shamelessly addicted to LEGO, and that includes Chronicle Books’ colorful 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles. LEGO Rainbow Bricks Puzzle is a particularly fun one, vividly tapping into the color puzzle trend without driving us bonkers like the all-yellow minifig puzzle. Bonus: These pieces don’t kill your feet when stepped on.

Mechanical LEGO Turbo Tank

Mechanical LEGO Turbo Tank

Elemental_lego builds original microscale LEGO models. Among his creations is this mechanical tank that crawls along a terrain treadmill beneath its wheels. It reminds us of the lunar buggy in the game Moon Patrol. He also built a rolling vehicle inspired by The Mandalorian’s Juggernaut. Buy the build instructions on Rebrickable.

Working LEGO Hand Grenade

Working LEGO Hand Grenade

A real hand grenade is designed to be tossed, then gives its thrower about 4 or 5 seconds to take cover before it explodes. This clever build from Make It LEGO follows the same paradigm. It stores energy in a rubber band “fuse” which then releases plastic shrapnel after a few seconds. Check out the build tutorial here.

LEGO 1×1 Gear Chain

LEGO 1×1 Gear Chain

Today’s most satisfying video comes in the form of this clip from the Brick Experiment Channel. Their goal? Create the longest possible chain of 1×1 LEGO Technic gears while retaining the same gear ratio from start to finish. We’re impressed that a single motor can drive that many gears.

How LEGO Bricks Are Made

How LEGO Bricks Are Made

LEGO bricks are the world’s favorite construction toys. We know they’re made out of plastic, but how do they make so many different colors and shapes? And how do they package just the right quantity of the right bricks? The LEGO Group takes us inside of their factories for an inside look at how a finished set comes together.

LEGO Roller Coaster POV

LEGO Roller Coaster POV

Expert LEGO builder Akiyuki takes us on a ride on a 224-foot-long train track that he designed and built. Along the way, you’ll enjoy twists, turns, loops, cliffs, bridges, and a few obstacles. The self-propelled camera car’s speed is more railroad than roller coaster, but it’s still a fun ride, especially watching it climb the stairs.

LEGO Ideas Marine Life

LEGO fanatic Brick Dangerous designed this awesome set of brick-built marine creatures.

Cast your vote if you want to see it produced.

LEGO Ideas Steampunk Airship

LEGO Ideas Steampunk Airship

Designed by LEGO Ideas 10K Club Member BrickHammer, this wondrous 2720-piece flying machine combines pirate-themed elements, steampunk aesthetics, and a splash of color. Despite the pirate ship looks, its creator says it’s a flying research vessel with defensive cannons to take on space pirates.

Giant LEGO Go-Kart

Giant LEGO Go-Kart

LEGO Gift Wrapping Factory

LEGO Gift Wrapping Factory

After building a LEGO machine that cuts gift wrap to the proper size for packages, The Brick Wall made good on their promise to build a machine that takes care of the wrapping too. It’s an impressive work of LEGO engineering, and we must have one of these before next Christmas comes around.

LEGO Suspended Train

LEGO Suspended Train

JK Brickworks shows off another one of his neat LEGO creations – a train that hangs from a track instead of riding on rails below. The design uses LEGO roller coaster track and motorized rollers above the gondola-style railway cars. Watch the build, or skip to 4:27 to see it running.

LEGO Egg Cracking Machine

LEGO Egg Cracking Machine

LEGO builder AstonishingStudios wants to eventually build a machine that can cook and assemble an entire Egg McMuffin. First on the list – a robot that breaks open an egg and separates it from its shell. It can also split up its yolk and its white. The trickiest part was engineering the part that delicately holds the egg and cracks it.

Giant LEGO Millennium Falcon

Giant LEGO Millennium Falcon

While it doesn’t have nearly as many pieces as the Ultimate Collector Series version of the Millennium Falcon, intronDave’s LEGO model is about 50% larger. He used the now rare mid-scale version as a guide for 3D printing 356 jumbo (500% scale) LEGO bricks to snap together his 70-pound model.

LEGO Mandalorian Stop-Motion

LEGO Mandalorian Stop-Motion

This is the way… to make a LEGO Star Wars animation. Forrest Whaley created this action-packed short film featuring Din Djarin as he puts his helmet back on to pursue a valuable bounty. Rather than just featuring characters from a galaxy far, far away, it takes place in a world populated by all kinds of LEGO minifigs.

Engineering a Climbing LEGO Car

Engineering a Climbing LEGO Car

If you slap wheels onto a basic motorized LEGO vehicle, it will have a hard time climbing over obstacles. The Brick Experiment Channel tested out a variety of design and drivetrain modifications to their car to see what it would take to climb over stacks of books with the best results.
